Acer Aspire processor upgrade.?

Hello.

I was just wounder if it is safe to go from a 15 watt AMD Athlon 2650e 1.6 GHz processor to an AMD 45 watt Athlon 64 X2 5050e 2.6 GHz dual core? I have read a lot on line and they say the processor is compatible. I'm just worried the 45 watt will produce too much heat and cause a lot of damage.

Thank you!

Update:

I have an Acer Aspire 5515 laptop.
